Copper pipes under a kitchen sink. SERVPRO of Newark, Southwest Fremont is ready for your call at (510) 737-8793.

SERVPRO of Newark, Southwest Fremont can walk you through what steps need to be taken. 

Sometimes disasters occur because materials are incompatible with your home's structure. For example, drinking water that exceeds health guidelines can corrode copper pipes from the inside. A whopping 90% of pinhole leaks on horizontal copper plumbing can result from this.

If your Fremont residence has suffered water damage from a pipe leak, restoration technicians at SERVPRO are a phone call away from providing service that returns your home to a clean, safe condition. SERVPRO techs receive Institute of Inspection Cleanup and Restoration Certification (IICRC) accreditation to perform high-quality mitigation services according to a consistent set of standards. Not only do these guidelines provide a consistent rubric for cleanup, but they encourage environmentally-friendly solutions that remove odors, microbes, and water damage successfully.

IICRC-Accredited Training Measures

The IICRC's standards inform the cleanup and restoration protocols that all disaster mitigation professionals must follow, and SERVPRO technicians must learn these standards to be certified to restore homes. Along with SERVPRO crew training, technicians-to-be must learn about best practices in the following disciplines:

  • Fire Restoration
  • Water Restoration
  • Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
  • Mold Remediation
  • And more

SERVPRO franchise owners also undergo training in these disciplines. New franchise owners also undergo a 15-day course at the SERVPRO Corporate Training Facility, so they are equipped with the tools and knowledge necessary to oversee a franchise as well as assist homeowners recovering from a disaster.

SERVPRO's Drying Process

Drying a space affected by flooding means not only knowing how many air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to dry the space, but where to put them. Centrifugal air moving equipment is typically placed at 45-degree angles to walls every 10 to 16 linear feet. A 10' by 12' room, therefore, would normally need about four air movers. Temperature is essential to effective drying, and conditions between 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit are ideal. Cold air slows water evaporation while hot air minimizes the effectiveness of dehumidifiers, which emit warm, dry air after absorbing moist air from air movement equipment. 

SERVPRO of Newark, Southwest Fremont has the tools and techniques you need to keep your home looking, "Like it never even happened." When disaster strikes in your home, you can call (510) 737-8793.
